Is it possible convert this parametric equations in a numerical equation?

$$ \begin{cases} \displaystyle x(t)=tv_0\cos(\theta)\\ \displaystyle y(t)=tv_0\sin(\theta)-\frac{1}{2}gt^2+h \end{cases} $$

Look at this Wikipedia's entry, at:

"Conversion from two parametric equations to a single equation"

  • $\begingroup$ Answer...to what, @FormlessCloud?! You just wrote in your "answer" a mathematical expression which I've no idea what it is and what its relation with your question is. $\endgroup$

$$ y=h+\left(x\tan(\theta)-\frac{g}{2v_0\cos^2(\theta)}x^2\right) $$
